Very tempting. My 65" Panny plasma is a bit too small and makes a great night-light.

But is there a market for getting rid of that plasma?

The wife just changed where she wants the TV. It puts me right about 11-12 feet for the viewing distance if its wall mounted. Is that too close for an 80"er? The charts I have seen seem to indicate its pushing it.

Chad, thanks for the review. This actually sounds like an awesome TV - I would be interested in getting the 80LE635 version with 3D - if they keep the same naming convention as 732-733-734-735. I'm guessing it will be coming in a few weeks/months, hopefully

Re: graininess, which could be alleviated somewhat by the noise reduction at the expense of some smearing

Graininess you talk about is not due to the display but it is originating from the content, right?

If so, this would certify very positively meaning the display is excellently able to squeeze the last juice out of the content - including its fuss and trash. Obviously such a Big&Sharp glass is tremendous magnifier of content imperfections.

Really? Why would they wait so long? It took them only a few months to move from 732 to 733, 734 and then 735. Oh well, at least something to look forward to

No, I felt it was added or at least exaggerated by the display in this case.

Was Sharp one of the manufacturers looking at switching to Passive 3D or are they staying Active?

I would think they would be showing 80" 632 with 3D and LD and the 70" 935 with full array and local dimming at CES this year.

I saw the Sharp 80" LCD TV today at Video only at a price lower than any Internet vendor price I have seen so far. The picture quality was excellent and the size was perfect for watching news, regular TV shows, etc. For movies I still think you need a 110" screen or larger for full effect, which means front projection or expensive home cooked rear projection.

I was also surprised at how good the 55" LG LED TVs were. They looked better than the Samsung models and better than my 3 year old LG LCD TV. You think TVs cannot get any better, but they do. Pixelation, even at close range, is pretty much gone, and sharpness and contrast keep getting better. Too bad my eyesight does not get better with age as well.

At the low price of the Sharp, they should sell allot of them.

3 years ago I would never have thought that I would ever get a Sharp. Yesterday bought the 70735.

Sharp is back and it's great to hear that the blacks are great. Chad implied that the blacks were below what his equipment could measure. Chad, what is the lowest measurement you got with your equipment so we have a point of reference for it's black level. THanks.

How does this set perform on non blu ray movies. Has anyone seen regular upconverted dvd's on this set? My concern is that with this size tv the imperfections would be that much more noticeable.

This was the 1st black level reading I've attempted with that meter, so I don't know.

I'm thrilled with my 70LE735 a month in, it continues to impress to the point where I already can't wait for a 735-or-higher version at 80".

Just amazing sets, go Sharp.

A few years ago Sound and Vision magazine had an article on optimum viewing distances from various screen sizes. Check out the attached chart and you will see that 10.5 feet is the perfect distance for watching 1080 Hi Def on an 80" screen. I currently sit about 7 feet from my 55" Vizio and find that the perfect distance for that set. I'm looking forward to moving my recliner back a few feet when my 80" Sharp gets delivered next week (I hope).
Got a great price in Canada at $4-1/2K.
I'll post my opinion of it a week or so later. I'm pretty picky so if something is wrong with it, I will definitely notice.

Best Buy in the Woodlands, TX just put theirs up in the Magnolia section of the store. I must say that I was really impressed with this set. I'm picky with picture quality to an extent and this set had really good blacks and great overall uniformity and color. I have been Skeptical of buying Sharp products the past few years but if they can release a 735 (like the 70 inch) version with 3D, Quattron and 240 hz, I'm picking one up ASAP. My expectations for this set were mediocre but upon finally seeing it in person, it's a definite best bang for the buck "Big" TV with pretty darn good quality. I took a photo and will post tomorrow to show the size of it next to a 55".

I wonder if this noise could be seen when displaying constant grey or color level. If yes, this would suggest problem with the analog electronics driving the display and/or signal distribution cables. If not, one would have to analyze the dependence on the input signal.

No, it could not be seen with constant colors or test patterns.

Interesting, but other sources will yield much different recommendations. THX and SMPTE numbers are quite different. Some are resolution based, others are field of view based. Here is an oft posted link:

Nice review Chad and I'm sold, but buyers remorse!

I bought a 734 2 months ago, love it but my room is huge... at a minimum 14' viewing distance, the 80" IS the ticket! I want it!

Anyone in southern CA looking for a barely used 734 with full warranty, PM me!

Very interesting and useful chart. Thanks.
I should have qualified my original comments and pointed out that this is the visual acuity recommended distance for 1080 viewing. Yes, you can sit closer and get a more expansive experience but.......there is a price to be paid for it - E.g. a softer picture.
Conversely, you can certainly sit further back as well but you will not see all the detail that is in the picture. This all assumes, of course, that you have normal 20-20 vision.
An absurd example would be to sit at the THX recommended distance watching a 480P DVD presentation. It would be so blurry as to be unwatchable as well as eye strain and headache inducing.
I love the big screen experience at home (Duh!) and have a 1080UB Epson projector as well. I watch a 92" screen from about 11.5 feet away and find that very satisfying. I've tried other distances but find the rapidly softening picture too big a sacrifice to move any closer.
